New Community Councillor

Eeva-Kaisa Arter was coopted on to the Community Council at the June meeting to fill the vacant Kinneff seat, which leaves us just one seat to fill to be up to full numbers again.

There is still one seat (Dunnottar) currently unfilled, and we are interested in hearing from anyone interested in joining us. Dunnottar parish is the northern part of the CKDCC area, and covers from Mill of Uras up to Dunnottar Castle, and over to Auquhirie and the Carron. It includes Dunnottar Castle and the East Newtonleys area that is the site for Bancon's proposed "Stonehaven South" project.

"Stonehaven South" development plans

Members of Catterline, Kinneff and Dunnottar Community Council attended the public exhibition for the proposed development around East Newtonleys in the parish of Dunnottar. The brochure outlining the plans, which include 1000 houses, a supermarket, health centre, primary school and other community resources, can be downloaded from Bancon Developments web site.

Plans are at an early stage at the moment and the developers - Bancon Developments, Stewart Milne and Dunecht Estates - are just starting the process. They are currently seeking input from the community, and as the site is entirely within the boundary of CKDCC we are well placed to influence the way the development proceeds.

As CKDCC will be discussing the plans over the coming weeks and are interested to hear your views. If you would like to have your say, please come along to one of our public meetings or contact us via our web site.
